lifamong the jews. this ithe power t mythic story in judaism. >> actually, that's really my younger brother. you know, he's gone back to selling used cars, and i don't think he reads the bible any way. but no, the story in there, the power of it, is what we're looking at in myth. and again, like we said, you could just imagine how people reading that could pick up on the things that were so important to them. another thing is, oftentimes people will say, "oh, america is a christian nation." and 88 percent of the people who are some form of religion in this country are christians, so you can say anything you want, i suppose, and get away with it. but not really so, a christian nation, because the first amendment to the u.s. constitution separates church and state. however, i always like to say, "well, in some senses, it's a christian nation, but it most certainly is a jewish nation, because that whole creation, liberation, exodus, making of a holy land - we've got towns around here called zion or new canaan or whatever - what the whole drama - and again, i'm not making this up, folks, as dav

to our path or whether that's very different. >> so if my path is heading towards catholicism or judaism or whatever, that is not in conflict with what you're doing? >> no. >> it's not a conflict for us. >> are you open year-round, and do you have a brochure? >> yes! [laughter] >> i think it's interesting, because we've just been through a session on judaism - the ancient myths and rituals stories - and both starhawk and margot adler - came out of intellectual, atheistic, radical jewish families. they are, in a sense, the contemporary flowering of judaism, in the sense that they are returning to very ancient roots, that old rock upon which all the world's religions, i believe, have been based. >> now which changes not. >> huh? >> now which changes not. >> ah, yes. >> well, the jewish tradition, in other words, is fulfilled in both margot adler and starhawk - they're both jewish. >> yes. >> that's the point i made. >> yeah, and i think that does also fit - back with judaism, we were talking about different interpretations of the genesis story, the alienation story, and i love your myth ab

, it is similar to judaism. one cannot make an image of god. to make an image is to limit. you cannot have an image without limitation of lines, colors, forms, so forth. god is beyond limitation. >> wherever one is creating, it is there a feeling of an intellectual concept? >> it is all of those. first of all, is the presence, then a feeling, and then an intellectual point. sometimes a warmth, elements of nature that are symbolic of pretoria letties. but in give you an example. protestants also reject pictures of god. in protestant churches, especially lutheran churches, you do not have pictures of god. when a young boy praise to god, he does not have a statue of god in front of him, like a hindu boy praying to ganesh. i would not like to call it abstract. >> when you are in the mosque praying, do you actually feel god's presence? >> very much. a sacred place before god's presence. he sees us. although we do not see him, because there is no form, but we have form, and god sees us. for example, the power of vision. we associate vision with our two eyes, but god sees without having physicali

different kind of ritual patterns in judaism. well, the same thing exists in a country like the united states, that we see these - what ideally these celebrations that we go through do is provide social cohesion - it brings us together, it makes us - identity, a sense of unity. at least, we may be very diverse in the country, but we can come together around this event and agree on something. notice - thinking back, for those of you who are old enough to have lived through the so-called vietnam era, what you saw there is absolute atomic bomb disruption of the american mythos. civil religion was so damaged that people were struggling to try to find meaning in any kind of ritual - very, very difficult to be an american in 1970. you were either on one side or the other - you were bound into one civil religious thing or into another. yeah, janet? >> my friend, robert, went to war. he enlisted in the marines, and to this day, the u.s. flag has no special meaning for him, because its whole mythological symbolism was found, for his life, to be untrue. >> see, now there is a response the flag.

is brand new and it's in turmoil. it's just beginning to break the umbilical cord with judaism. roman persecution is intense. anger by the jews, who haven't accepted christianity- tensions within that community. a very difficult time. competition, still, with the roman mystery cults. so what is this religion meant to do? it's meant to bolster christian spirit in the face of martyrdom. so an apocalyptic theodicy- a religious one- says, "yes, you're suffering. yes, it hurts. yes, change is a bummer. but on the cosmic level, this is wonderful, because what's happening in heaven is the beginning of the end time, and that shows that just around the corner, you will be saved, you'll be vanquished." so you can bear up under it, and that's what we see. now the branch davidians, this is a classic religious apocalyptic theodicy, running in the minds of david koresh and his followers, in which they're at the end - time, they're on- he literally transfers, as we see in this roll-in; actually, we'll see it here very shortly- the actual plain of armageddon- he transfers it to the plains of texas. a

the three monotheistic religions. for different reasons. judaism everywhere, christian millionaire and it -- million area andism in the united states and throughout the muslim world. with regard to -- and judaism i was a member of the iraqi delegation to the united nations after the war. it wasn't saddam hussein. it was the pan arab list before saddam. saddam fought to the death. and in new york, there seemed just a little more than usual people with black eye patches. and of course, the jubilation, triumphalism, the israeli song and they are not very good on song, reverberated throughout the city. it was as if the historian i recalled the jubilation imprisoned them after the defeat of the ottoman in 1751 where church bells throughout europe reached scotland in celebration. for islam, this was the first time since the crusade that the muslim holy places themselves were under non-muslim military occupation. and they say wait, what about the british mandate? actually the brits, because their empire had so many muslims and since the british empire was the muslim empire, they were extr

in memory in spain and the moment of great cultural cooperation between islam christianity and judaism -- >> that's something of it, but what that book came out of is something else. what was growing in india at that time was not an islamic, but nationalism, and one important aspect of that was to raise the issue of authenticity. what was an authentic indian, and that the hindu thought it was only the hindu experience of india was authentically indian, and all the minorities, the largest, the muslim minority, were in some way inauthentic; right? i found that very annoying, and so i thought that i would take a very small indian minority, the south indian jewish community. >> yeah. .. >> have this same freedom of expression in? i would broaden that to the complete the part list and trashy video that may be calculated to offend. >> figures speech includes that. not just artist but garbage makers. i don't think even he knows his name.

a problem for me. c-span: the last several essays in your book, of the 41, is about judaism or about being a jew. >> guest: mm-hmm. c-span: where are you? are you a practicing jew? >> guest: sort of. that is, i'm a member of a jewish congregation, and i go to synagogue on the high holidays. i attend bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs. i do not observe jewish law because i never did. i think if i had it to do over again, i would be more observant. but i don't have it to do over again, and i'm not going to completely change my life now. that's rather silly, i think. but being jewish has never been a problem for me. c-span: what does that mean? >> guest: well, i--i--you know, i... c-span: what is being jewish? i mean, what i--what's the culture? >> guest: well, it's not a question of culture. it's a question of identity. i always knew i was jewish. i never thought of not being jewish. i was always very pleased to be jewish. after all, not everyone is a member of the chosen people, and so i just went along. even when i was not all that observant--i still am not all that observant--being jewish just

...? >> steven spielberg: my judaism. >> stahl: were jewish? oh. >> steven spielberg: uh-huh. >> stahl: were you ashamed? >> steven spielberg: uh-huh. i often told people my last name was german, not jewish. i'm sure my grandparents are rolling over in their graves right now, hearing me say that. but i think that, you know, that i was in denial for a long time. >> stahl: so when people say that a lot of your movies are about outsiders, that's what you must've felt. >> steven spielberg: oh, yeah. i was an outsider for all... most of my formative years. >> stahl: what saved him was a camera he got from his dad. >> howard. get away from there. >> stahl: when he was 16, he made his first talkie called "firelight," a science fiction thriller he produced, directed, wrote, edited, and showed at the local movie theater. you obviously got a lot of approval for these early films. you got a lot of attention. was that what motivated you to go on with it? was that, "oh, my god, i'm finally being accepted?" >> steven spielberg: well, i had found a way to accept myself in my own life by making movies

with moses, he spoke with jesus- these people are all invited, and we should make the point that judaism, christianity, and islam all share a great tradition. other relationship- oh, yeah, jamie, you jump in here. >> well, it's similar to what her thought was. i'm just wondering if the number five had any other special significance in the muslim religion? >> you know, i honestly don't know. seven usually comes up big in most other traditions- i'm thinking christianity. i don't know the five- well, we'll see that with the five, it corresponds to the times of the day- you know, morning, midday, late afternoon, evening- so it corresponds to actually the light; there's a wonderful sense of beauty- beauty is really important in islam. yeah? >> well, the zakat- is that how you pronounce it? >> sounds good to me. >> well, this reminds me, a couple years ago, i had to- there was a visiting professor here from egypt, and we had to type an accounting book, an islamic accounting book. so all this stuff is starting to- it's bringing back to my memory about the alms to the poor, so that it's all set

for in these great religions of christianity, judaism, islam, etc. before we can have that real brotherhood, that feeling of love for my fellow human being, i think we have to grow up and mature a lot when it comes to perceiving the realities that we think we know already, you know. i'm talking about our nation. the way i perceive our nation, i think, is very healthy for me, and i wish all african-americans could perceive this america the way i perceive it, but they don't. and the many white americans that i have become acquainted with perceive this nation as not the way that i think would give me a good life and my children a good life if i passed those feelings on to my children. so american people, in my opinion- and not only the way we perceive america, the way we look at human beings, too, human life and everything, i think we are a society of people that are far advanced when it comes to science and technology, and even the ability to socialize with each other- we are more socially mature than most people that i meet outside of america. but i think we are far behind our advancement in

or insights that you had. yeah? >> when i think of christianity or judaism, i think of community, families - the thing with hinduism and buddhism are the men seem isolated from the women, and the men are social people; it seems - i want the family to be brought into it, i guess because of my christian background, i see worship as a family unit. and maybe i'm not far along enough in this - in buddhism or hinduism to see that there is that there is that possibility. >> i see what you're saying. i'm going to let you jump in there, helen, also. >> i would like to follow up on that. >> go ahead. follow-up on that. >> in this book, it describes the ethics of thew world's religions, and in every religion, it says, "what's the role of women?" and in buddhism, according to hunt, craudi and craudi, a woman cannot receive enlightenment or enter nirvana unless she's born again as a man. so of course, any feminist would object to that because we want to be first-class citizens wherever we are. well, my grandson is studying at a vipassana center in massachusetts, and i think vipassana is mindfulness. an

and judaism -- >> that's something that, you know, what that book really came out of was something else. what was growing in india at that time was not a, not an islamic, but a hindu fanaticism. the rise of extremist hindu nationalism. and one important aspect of that was to raise the issue of authenticity. what was an authentic indian? and the hindu nationalist answer was that only the hindu experience of india was authentically indian. and what it meant was that all the minorities, of course, the largest minority being the muslim religion, were inauthentic. and i found that annoying. and so i was about to take the south indian jewish community and then create an even smaller minority by having somebody from that community marry into a south indian catholic family, thus creating a catholic/jewish individual who was probably a minority of one person, you know? [laughter] in a country of a billion people. and then show that you could actually grow the whole experience of india out of that one person. you know? so that everybody in india is authentically indian is what i wanted to say, you know

moderate -- i could not as an outsider. i was just, again, just a guide representing judaism. that is all. [laughter] i was almost like a syringe you at that moment. it was an interesting role. -- i was almost like eight syrian -- a syrian jew at that moment. it was an interesting role. >> what is inspirational is the younger generation has acknowledged the fault of the younger generation. if you have a lot of that happening naturally. for example, a group of young activists would probably dbe defined as a secular. there are much more approachable than their mothers' generation which actually have in their bylaws that you cannot be a member of a feminist organization. it was talking about how she was reaching out to the more conservative. she was sitting in her final examination in college when two of her friends -- not necessarily good friends -- the teacher said, come up to them, and you must take off your scarf for leave. basically, their entire school was in jeopardy so they decided to leave because they felt they were under this moral road and they couldn't do that. raised in a secul

of state or the president of the united states tells us that islam is a great religion or that judaism is fantastic religion or that christianity is wonderful religion, he is playing, he is entering into that crazy universe of these radical jihadists when it comes to the islamists. and by the way, i believe every religion has its own ayatollah, so don't worry about it. and so this is a huge mistake. it's a political issue. every time when we deal with these rabid radicals in those societies, we are entering into the crazy universe, and we lose. this is not religious, we are not engaged in religious disputation, we are dealing with societies that are weak, that have been marginalized, that have been brutalized, that have been pulverized by their own people. and the arabs who still remember the glory days watch the rest of the world today in a globalized world as if the world is passing them by like a cara van and leaving them behind. and this is, this is it. thank you. >> hisham, thank you.

.com because she is crude, according to this rabbi, and uses judaism inappropriately but really crossed the line for most people was the rabbi making a comment like this one. i pray that you channel your drive and direct your passion to something positive, something that will make you better and a more positive person. i pray that you pursue marriage and, if you are so blessed, ray raise children. sarah's dad, donald silverman apparently didn't take kindly to those comments. he is blunt, much like sarah, and told the rabbi to shove it. he mentioned that sarah's sister is a rabbi. i'm a big fan of sarah silverman. i have nothing to complain about. >> i think she is funny, too. she is crude but i laugh all the time. >> it's what she does. >> i know. a.j. hammer, thanks so much. a.j. is back next hour to talk about disney's newest princess, who happens to be hispanic. grap with the e-trade 360 investing dashboard. e-trade 360 is the world's first investing homepage that shows you where all your investments are and what they're doing with free streaming quotes, news, analysis and even your
